Re: Tonight's net

When Wayne opened up he was 449 here in NJ.  I dropped my callsign after Bill, KV6Z.  He was acknowledged, but not me.  Bill was a fairly skimpy 559. 


I listened throughout their QSO interchange and both signals were getting better--Wayne now a skimpy 559 and Bill solidly 559. 


Wayne was very generous with his next several CQs and I tried to QNI after each, dropping my callsign three times.  No luck, but then I heard Bill announce my presence.  I immediately called him giving his RST and Wayne's.  However, I never got an acknowledgement from Bill.  And then the freq went silent.


I have the advantage of 70 minutes more darkness than you fellows.  With the increasing amount of daylight for the next 11 weeks, mebbe having the Wednesday evening net on 40m might be considered.


72,


Charles, W2SH

Normally, Sam, this would look very bad on your permanent record. However
tonight's net was on 80m.

Hello All,

My mind is still on Central Standard Time - at least tonight. I started a
CW
QSO on 7122 with WA8REI in Freeland Michigan at 0023Z, not realizing the
net
started shortly afterward. If my QSO spilled over onto net time, I truly
apologize.

I have been running mostly the C-1 clone for a year now and will change to
the
Frog Sounds QRP rig shortly ( who dreams up these names? hi )

Soup'er Up'er for the Bayou Jumper

Souped Up Bayou Jumper with Soup'er Up'er add-on board

davemrtn
 

    I have been working on an add-on board for the Bayou Jumper and now have one installed in my own Bayou Jumper.

    I call the board the Soup'er Up'er and it adds Sidetone, Fine Tuning, RX Audio Muting during transmit, and a Hi-Per-Mite CW Filter adapted to the Bayou Jumper.

    I did get approval from NM0S to use his circuit design (Hi-Per-Mite).


    Someone (I haven't requested his permission to tell you about this) kindly allowed me to piggy-back a PCB order onto an order he was placing, so I have 9 extra PCBs besides the one I built and installed in my Bayou Jumper.

    I will have my Bayou Jumper and the 9 extra PCBs at OzarkCon 2017 along with a sample instruction manual.  I only purchased enough parts to build the one for my radio so if you get one of the PCBs, you will need to order your own parts.... for now.

    The manual will include building instructions, a Soup'er Up'er schematic, hole drilling templates with dimensions and a B.O.M.


The manual will be made available (online) after OzarkCon 2017.


Photos of my Bayou Jumper with the added controls and the Soup'er Up'er PCB are posted in the Bayou Jumper Yahoo Groups photo section.


See ya' at OzarkCon 2017.....  It is ALWAYS a great and fun event.
